Updated Seahawks injury situation heading into...


The Seattle Seahawks suffered a major blow to their starting offensive lineup when center Justin Britt tore his ACL on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Headed for surgery and the injured reserve, Britt likely played his last game for Seattle this year.

Aside from Britt, the Seahawks were fortunate to come out of the win with relatively no new injuries.

“Nothing out of the ordinary – bumps and bruises and stuff like that,” coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday. “We’re checking on some guys today and making sure everybody’s okay. Nobody is really hitting the injury list.”

Quandre Diggs, who Seattle just traded for last week, could make his Seahawks debut on Sunday. “We’re going to take him through the week and see,” Carroll explained. “He had a hamstring that he came to us with and he had played with it. We uncovered that we need to take care of him to get him back fully. He’ll be running around this week. He was very controlled last week. We’ll see how far he can go. I can’t say that he’s for sure back yet for this weekend.”

Tre Flowers could also resume practice this week. “Yes. He feels a lot better today,” Carroll noted. “I think he made the comment that if we were playing tonight, he could play. We thought he could get through it and have a chance. He’s that much better. He’s pretty optimistic. He should be okay to work all week long and give himself another chance to be back.”

Ed Dickson could make his return from the injured reserve. “He’s going to go this week,” Carroll confirmed. “We’re bringing Ed back in with the thought to give him a chance to practice with the chance to play. We’ve worked him really hard leading up to this time through his rehab and all. He’s been preparing for the workload. Very optimistic that he could, if he can make it through the week. We’re going to see how he handles the workload. We don’t know about that, of course. His mindset is on plan.”

Quinton Jefferson will start the week limited in practice. “He’s better, we’re going to have to see how he goes through the week,” Carroll said. “We’re still working on that oblique thing that he had. They can’t predict yet what’s going to happen, so he’ll go light on Wednesday, and then we’ll see how he does in the later part of the week.”

The Seahawks have an off day Tuesday and report back to the VMAC Wednesday to prepare to face Tampa Bay.
